What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness meditation is an experience and not a philosophy. It does not offer concepts of life, but is a direct way of seeing and knowing life. This is different than our traditional knowing through our veils of thinking and opinion--it is a deep and direct knowing.
Mindfulness meditation is a practice that helps us learn wise and skillful ways to harness the ordinary power of our minds. Mindfulness, the paying of bare or direct attention to each moment of our lives, is the most crucial aspect of meditation practice.
Mindfulness may be used as a vehicle for change, healing, and stress reduction. Hippocrates said, "It is the job of the physician to help the patient find the healing power within himself".
Mindfulness is the simple and attainable practice of potentially unlocking these powers by cultivating the healing potential of a mind that sees clearly and is focused.
